Efficacy Study of Substitution of Darunavir/Ritonavir (DRV/r) for Dual-boosted Protease Inhibitors
This study will evaluate patients who have achieved virologic suppression (< 400 copies/mL) on any dual protease inhibitor (PI) combination, to determine whether patients can substitute both PIs with the single boosted PI darunavir given 600/100 ritonavir (RTV) twice daily (BID) and maintain comparable virologic suppression (% < 50 c/mL) for 24 weeks.
The purpose of this study is to determine if patients who have achieved virologic suppression (< 400 copies/mL) on any dual PI combination, can substitute both PIs with the single boosted PI darunavir given 600/100 rtv bid and maintain comparable virologic suppression (% < 50 c/mL) for 24 weeks. Randomized, non-blinded, multicenter, 48 week, controlled trial to assess the non-inferiority of substituting DRV/r for a dual boosted PI combination in patients with stable virologic suppression on a regimen containing a dual boosted PI combination plus at least one additional FDA-licensed antiretroviral agent from another class. Participants will be randomized (1:1) to one of the included treatment arms.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Therapeutic introduction of ions of soluble salts into tissues by means of electric current. In medical literature it is commonly used to indicate the process of increasing the penetration of drugs into surface tissues by the application of electric current. It has nothing to do with ION EXCHANGE; AIR IONIZATION nor PHONOPHORESIS, none of which requires current.
Inflammation of brain parenchymal tissue as a result of viral infection. Encephalitis may occur as primary or secondary manifestation of TOGAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; HERPESVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ADENOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; FLAVIVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; BUNYAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; PICORNAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; PARAMYXOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; RETROVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; and ARENAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS.
Electric Stimulation Therapy
Application of electric current in treatment without the generation of perceptible heat. It includes electric stimulation of nerves or muscles, passage of current into the body, or use of interrupted current of low intensity to raise the threshold of the skin to pain.
Viral infections of the leptomeninges and subarachnoid space. TOGAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; FLAVIVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; RUBELLA; BUNYAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ORBIVIRUS infections; PICORNAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; RHABDOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ARENAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; HERPESVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ADENOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; JC VIRUS infections; and RETROVIRIDAE INFECTIONS may cause this form of meningitis. Clinical manifestations include fever, headache, neck pain, vomiting, PHOTOPHOBIA, and signs of meningeal irritation. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1996, Ch26, pp1-3)
Infections with viruses of the family PARAMYXOVIRIDAE. This includes MORBILLIVIRUS INFECTIONS; RESPIROVIRUS INFECTIONS; PNEUMOVIRUS INFECTIONS; HENIPAVIRUS INFECTIONS; AVULAVIRUS INFECTIONS; and RUBULAVIRUS INFECTIONS.
